Spotlight On… The Ivory Secret
Posted on February 13 2018
We work with some pretty fantastic bridal boutiques and retailers throughout the UK and across the world, so we thought it would be a good idea to introduce some of them to you and get you a bit more acquainted.
First up, please welcome Eleanor from The Ivory Secret. The Ivory Secret will be celebrating it’s 7th birthday in May 2018, but for boutique-owner Eleanor, her passion for bridalwear goes back a lot further than this! Being brought up by a dress-making mother, it’s no surprise that she pursued a creative career and a degree in Textile Design. And after several years of working as a textile designer for couture and bridalwear, Eleanor decided to open up her own bridal boutique haven in the quaint market town of Crediton near Exeter. Stocking designer wedding gowns, she also satisfies her original love for textiles by designing her own collection of couture gowns exclusive to the boutique.
“The vintage luxe of the Rachel Simpson collection is right at home in the intimate inspiring boutique that is The Ivory Secret, based in Crediton, just outside Exeter. Always striving to offer brides a selection of beautiful things that celebrate their own unique personalities; the Rachel Simpson brand fits perfectly with that ethos.
As with the designer gowns, these gems have been carefully hand-picked to house a gorgeous selection of Rachel Simpson pieces, each with their own individual qualities and style, ensuring that they best complement this exclusive wedding dress collection.
The Gabriella shoes and Georgia handbag are firm favourites, with their ornate floral detail that is so in-keeping with this year’s bridal trend for three-dimensional adornment. And to accompany the more Art Deco style gowns, the Isabelle shoes are a beautiful choice, or even add the Art Deco fan clips to transform a simpler shoe.
The luxurious metallic leathers and soft colour palette also pair beautifully with the lustrous metals of Agnes Walker headpieces and accessories. So, with The Ivory Secret’s expert styling advise discerning brides can coordinate the entire bridal outfit under one roof.
The Ivory Secret brides rave about how comfortable the Rachel Simpson shoes are, but while so often comfort means a sacrifice of beauty, this isn’t the case here, as each piece also exudes style and elegance. From exquisite leather T-bars and feminine peep-toes that would make Cinderella envious, to glittering shoe clips and delicately-decorated clutch bags, Rachel Simpson offers the perfect finishing touch to these exquisite dresses!
